Synopsis:
The following is from the official DVD description:

"The Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie establishes the origins of the Aqua Teens and attempts to explain the back story to some age-old mysteries that have surrounded the Aqua Teens. Or does it? No one really knows."

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD" is rated R for crude and sexual humor, violent images and language.

The Movie:
This is the kind of movie that makes me realize there are people in Hollywood with more money than sense. Why anyone would pay to have this movie made is beyond me.

I've seen a couple of episodes of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" on Adult Swim in the past, but I never thought it was good enough to follow, much less make a big screen feature about. Sure, it had a few funny moments, but it wasn't all that great. The movie pretty much is a really long version of the TV show with profanity, and unfortunately ATHF is best taken in small doses.

Watching the movie made me feel like I was viewing something put together by a hyperactive teenager. It was occasionally funny, but overall the plot made no sense, it seemed terribly random, and it frequently crossed the line from being 'edgy' to being in bad taste. Even having a passing familiarity with the TV series didn't help much. I think the creators have some talent buried somewhere deep down inside, but they need an adult guiding them in order to have any hope. The title alone shows they have issues. "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD" seems more like a "Borat" ripoff than a clever bit of comedy.

The movie did have a couple of shining moments. An opening parody of those old theater snack commercials starts things off on the right foot, but it quickly goes downhill from there. The DVD cover artwork is also a pretty funny parody of the old Boris Vallejo fantasy paintings. Beyond that, though, there's little redeemable here.

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD" is only for people that actually watch the TV show and bought the DVDs. Everyone else should probably avoid it.

There are a ton of bonus features included on this DVD. Not only do you get the theatrical version of the movie, but you get the 80 minute "Deleted Movie", too. This seems to be an animatic, rough cut of the film. The lips of the characters don't even move. Many of the scenes are significantly different from those in the final film. You'll also find a 26 minute "making of" featurette called "The Thing We Shot Wed Night". A batch of 8 deleted scenes are included, most of which are very brief. An inexplicable batch of 10 fake endings is also included. The music videos are also a major focus. The videos themselves are featured along with a lot of behind the scenes featurettes. Besides the usual galleries, trailers, and other goodies, a few promotional items offer up some good laughs. "Dana Man-On-The-Street Promos" show one of the actors quizzing people about the movie in theaters. A 4 and a half minute fake interview with Dana Snyder and Bob Odenkirk offers a lot of laughs, too.
